Apr 03, 2024

Envirotainer, the specialist in temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical shipments, today released its Sustainability Report for 2023. In a year marked by challenging global events, Envirotainer’s commitment to sustainable practices remained stronger than ever with science-based targets added to the company’s already ambitious environmental goals.

Envirotainer’s report recognises the challenges of achieving sustainability in the logistics sector. Instead of chasing short term accolades, its strategy focuses on long term goals that will make the biggest overall impact.

“Our journey towards sustainability is not about dramatic shifts but the unwavering commitment to our values and long-term goals,” said David Simonsson, CEO of Envirotainer. “We believe that this approach will have the biggest impact for our company, our stakeholders and society. Our latest Sustainability Report captures this ethos. It highlights our industry leading dedication to sustainability at every level from operations to our entire value chain.”

The report outlines Envirotainer’s wide-ranging sustainability efforts, including key insights, such as:

• The company successfully transported approx. 2 million doses of medicines and vaccines per day in 2023.

• The business achieved a 99.86 per cent on-time delivery rate with no temperature deviations, maintaining its strong record of reliability and precision

• Envirotainer as a group used 95 per cent renewable electricity across its operations, with its Swedish production facilities fully powered by green energy

• Almost 100 per cent of the company’s partner stations have voluntarily signed its 2023 Supplier Code of Conduct, showing a collective effort towards a sustainable supply chain

• Envirotainer was recognised as a Great Place to Work, scoring 84 per cent overall and a 79 per cent trust index, showcasing a supportive and inclusive work environment

• The company has achieved progress in gender diversity, with one-third of its leadership roles and 44 per cent of its management group being women (compared to 22 per cent in 2022).

Collaboration is at the heart of Envirotainer’s approach to sustainability. Working closely with its partners and suppliers, the company has made significant commitments to reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

“We believe that sustainability isn’t just something to be measured but a commitment to be lived. Our focus is on creating a meaningful and lasting impact. We are dedicated to making sure our efforts today lead to a healthier, more sustainable world tomorrow,” added Simonsson.
